San Stefanos news and views / So what is Thomsons up to in 2011?
« on: July 31, 2010, 01:05:11 PM »
Knowing that I had booked for the Tsaros in May 2011, last night my mate was browsing the Thomson holidays and he came across something very odd indeed. I have got the 'usual' 20kg baggage allowance for the Tsaros, but when we got to look at the Kaloudis (Arillas) for September we found that Thomsons were only giving 15 kg baggage, but you could have another 5 kg for an extra £10 per person. We also found that the Mathraki was the same. Yet if you look at one of the sensatori places you get 23kg baggage and 7 kg for hand. What a ridiculous state of affairs that different people on the SAME plane will be getting different baggage allowances. Thomsons should try and come up with an explanation for something I find stupid!!

UPDATE....found this deep within Thomsons site....

Please note, customers booking Skytours, Just and Freestyle holidays, as well as customers booking their holiday within 60 days of departure, may have a reduced baggage allowance of 15kg. Please check this on the Travel Options page at the time of booking. An additional 5kg per person can be purchased at the time of booking for an extra charge of £10 (this must be booked for the whole party travelling).

Upshot is if anyone is booking Skytours then make absolutely certain that you know what allowance you have otherwise you will pay out bigtime in the airport!!

Information and help please / No Ad Sunscreen
« on: June 09, 2010, 12:16:15 PM »
For years my wife and I have used No Ad 30 factor sunscreen, and we used to get it in our local town at the likes of Wilkinsons, Superdrug and even Asda. Now...none anywhere. We like this stuff- it works well, doesnt have an overpowering smell and you do not feel like a grease ball. Could I please ask the SS forum bloodhounds if they have seen it anywhere in their vicinity that I might be able to get some. I thank you.

San Stefanos news and views / Thomson in flight 'meal'
« on: September 20, 2009, 01:19:21 PM »
I have been travelling with Thomson for more years than I can shake a stick at, and have always had the in flight meal even though it has always seemed dear for what you got. We went through the Aldo Zilli phase- didn't notice much difference there I have to say- but in 2008 things went noticeably downhill in that the prices went up and what you got decreased, on this occasion there was only one thimble of tea or coffee.
   This year at an eye watering £7.50 each even further reductions in what is given. No cheese and biscuit, meals out and back were laughably called 'MASH' but reminded me of Smash, or for those longer in the tooth Pomme. The sausages repeated on me for 24 hours and I do not suffer from indigestion, the starter was awful, and still only one thimble of tea, in my case it had froth on it and looked and tasted like dishwater.
    Thats it for me with their overpriced crap, its a roll or two from now on that we do ourselves so we do not suffer the aftereffects at a great cost.

I am due to fly in 8 weeks and have put off buying any euros because of the pitiful rate. Could anyone getting any please give us the heads up as to the rate and from whom. I thank you.

Being a total dipstick, I have on two occasions forgot my log in password, so resorted to asking for an email reminder. ::) On neither event did I receive one, despite several attempts. Good job plan B worked!! :-[
